I have had the privilege to be at the helm of the ITM-
Group of Institutions since the very beginning, and I
have had the unique pleasure of witnessing thousands
of careers taking off and dreams coming true, as
our students turn to face the world, emboldened by
their experiences at ITM and their desire to achieve
something big.
You are reading this message because you too, are
looking forward to start something that you hope will
transform your life, your career and even the planet!
I am confdent you have taken the frst steps towards
making that transformation happen.
The MBA/PGDM is in a state of crisis, as business
schools have taken the easy way out for too long. At
ITM, weve realized this and have gone back to our
roots and questioned everything we have taken for
granted. In the last 2 years, I have personally led an
initiative to dramatically change how we prepare
students for business careers, called The Rethink
Over the last 2 years I have personally met hundreds
of CEOs and industry leaders and sought their insight
and their expectations of business school graduates.
We have looked inward, and broken down our PGDM
program, cast away the parts that were obsolete and
completely redesigned the PGDM. In the pages ahead,
you will read and understand just how radical the
changes are!
Over the years, we have come to pride on our Merit as
the only currency accepted philosophy for admissions.
ITM-Business School has never sold a seat nor do
we believe in the practice of collecting donations or
capitation fees or allow infuence or lobbying to affect
our admission process. Complete transparency and
equal opportunity for all have been ITMs bedrock
principles for admissions.

The ITM PGDM iConnect
2014 -16 edition
This changes everything.again
In 2011, we had a vision of the future of business
and the challenging times that lay ahead for
aspiring business professionals and the Institutions
that trained them. We realized that the global
business environment has become so much more
complex, and that technology, economics and
market dynamics are deeply entwined.
Frankly, we realized that MBA programs are
woefully inadequate preparation for the jobs that
await aspiring management professionals. The
MBAs value as a training program for managerial
talent was waning, companies were fnding it hard
to fnd recruits who could hit the ground running
and be productive from the frst day on the job. Day
Zero productivity was the demand, and B-schools
across the world had failed in supplying that
We came to the urgent realization that the ITM
PGDM program must change radically, in order
to maintain our leadership and reputation as a
provider of high-value education. In mid-2011 a
senior management team, led by Dr. P.V. Ramana,
Chairperson of ITM-Group, began interacting with
hundreds of business leaders, from CEOs to HR
and functional heads, to try and understand the
talent gap their companies are facing.
At the outset, we forced ourselves into a Blank
Slate approach - We agreed to challenge
everything about the ITM PGDM, from curriculum
to pedagogy, training and placement. Once we
wiped the slate clean, our team began to conduct
extensive open-ended discussions with hundreds
CEOs and business heads across India.
The learning we gleaned from these hundreds
of interactions have been carefully analysed and
consolidated into four core focus areas. Building
up from these focus areas, we redeveloped the ITM
PGDM into a program that we call iConnect
The iConnect 2014-16 edition mandate
Complexity and Proximity
Todays business professional is required to assimilate torrents of knowledge and data, develop actionable
insights at lightning speed and perform as part of large teams, often spread across geographies and time zones.
Combined with this increasing complexity, the distance between producers and consumers has shrunk, thanks
to the revolution in communication through the Internet, social media and mobile technology. Managers are no
longer removed from customers- everyone in an organization, regardless of position has a sales and service role.
Our collective output of new knowledge of every
facet of life has created a mass of business and
technological know-how that has overtaken the
capability of any MBA program to deliver.
iConnect is designed to meet many of these
challenges. Doing away with purely classroom-
rooted methods, iConnect seeks to open up the
world to the student, bringing together the forces
of academics, self-development, professional
development and real work experiences together
into a cohesive and mentored learning experience.
Each year since we launched the ITM PGDM
iConnect 2012, we have dramatically changed the
structure, content and delivery of the program.
Similar to the development of complex software,
iConnect is designed to be in Beta phase for
a long time, as we experiment with new ways of
delivering on its mandate.
single customer,
out of millions, can reach
out directly to the CEO of
a company- to express his
dissatisfaction through the power
of social media- this proximity,
a sort of public intimacy, has
changed how companies
view their customers
The ITM PGDM iConnect program has been designed to:
1. Deliver updated, streamlined industry relevant curriculum
2. Develop analytical, quantitative, communication and interpersonal skills as a core
component of the learning experience.
3. Help identify the students specialization choice early in the learning lifecycle, and
deliver targeted learning towards developing capabilities in the chosen feld.
4. Develop and practice the values of good work ethics, professionalism, social
consciousness, organizational responsibility, humility and humanity.
5. Provide enriching and immersive industry experience, with continuous faculty
support, employer feedback and academic rigor.
6. Prepare students for professional life during the entire program duration, through
planned and continuous interventions in interpersonal, professional, language and
leadership skills.
Introducing the ITM PGDM
iConnect program
This changes everythingagain! The ITM PGDM iConnect continues to undergo
radical changes to its structure, schedule and content, with each iteration focused on
refning and enhancing the program.
The 2014-16 edition highlights are:
A rescheduled and streamlined iConnect
Core internship.
Greater focus on communications
skills, through additional training in
English speaking.
Redesigned NGO project.
Redesigned Capstone Project .
Refned and focused Insight Sessions, now
delivered by a team of expert industry
trainers and core faculty.
We have completely redesigned the ITM
PGDM program, literally from the frst day-
frst-class, right up to convocation. Weve
removed all the existing courses and replaced
them with brand new, completely re-written
courses, focused on the skill-sets you need
now and the know-how you will need in
your career future. Weve taken the usual
2-month summer project and expanded
it into a 22-week internship thats called
iConnect Core, as it is an integral part of the
iConnect experience. Weve transformed pre-
placement training into a full-credit Career
Management module thats designed to give
you a competitive edge in fnal placements.
Weve left nothing untouched in developing,
what we believe is, one of the most radically
different PGDM programs any b-school offers
in India.
The ITM PGDM iConnect program is a two-
year full-time program, with a completely
redesigned program schedule, curriculum,
internship and training process. The program
is no longer formatted on a trimester or
semester pattern- rather a set of discrete
terms of study, industry immersion and
applied research that takes students through
a developmental journey from inexperienced
fresher to corporate-ready manager. Heres
how it all starts:

The Initialization is of 10 months duration and
delivers a set of 16 courses, which include core and

The Insight Sessions
In parallel, you will begin a journey towards an enduring

is a range of workshops, seminars, feld experiences

academic program cannot- challenging you to build
your attitudes, holistic management, character building,
communication skills, analytical capabilities and more.
Finally, you will engage in a co-curricular NGO/CSR live

and understand what it means to be socially responsible.
2. The iConnect Core Internship
Next comes the radically different part of the ITM
PGDM program, the iConnect Core. iConnect Core is
a 22-week industry internship, but its designed to be
much more than an extended summer project. You will

and to support functional teams within the company
and in the feld. ITM faculty members, who will be
embedded alongside you at the internship company
will provide guidance and insight. They will support
your work at the company, and will also mentor and
train you when you are back in the classroom.
(Note: for PGDM iConnect: International Business
students, the iConnect Core will be shortened, to allow
for the International Study Term)
3. The Consolidation
Once iConnect Core is completed, you will take
up the next full-time academic term, called The
Consolidation. This term is of 4 months duration, in
which you will take 8 advanced courses to complete

second tranche of Insight and Career Management
Sessions, designed to prepare for fnal placement.
Final placement begins in October/November.

The fnal session of the ITM PGDM iConnect is The
Capstone. True to its name, The Capstone is a multi-
disciplinary live project taken up by teams of students,
designed challenge their understanding of the various
courses taught in the preceding terms and their
profciency in business analysis and strategy.
5. Reconnect
The Radically Different ITM PGDM ends with a life-
long connection to the people who have made your
experience so enriching, as you pursue your ambitions
and professional goals. As an alumnus of the ITM Group,

your cohort and your faculties & help to extend the

business education.

Marketing and Digital Media
(Currently offered in our campuses in Bengaluru
and Mumbai) Marketing specialization has been
thoroughly revised
in select ITM PGDM iConnect campuses and
now includes an in-depth study of Digital Media
Marketing in addition to the mainstream marketing
methodologies. India is one of the fastest growing
digital media markets in the world. With the advent
of broadband and 3G, Indians are becoming
voracious consumers of digital content. The way
brands reach out to customers has changed ever
since Digital Media became so popular. Consumers
& businesses are increasingly shifting their attention
from traditional marketing media- television, radio,
and print ; to digital media. Today, companies have
realized that digital media is not just a component of
the marketing mix. A long-term, strategic investment
of resources in digital media is now the norm for
companies across industries, whether in the B2B or
B2C space. Digital marketing budgets are increasing
dramatically, and digital media campaigns are
becoming a pivotal part of effective marketing plans.
The Marketing and Digital Media specialization
enables students to understand the role of digital
media in successful marketing strategies. How does
Digital Media ft into the marketing mix? What is its
future worldwide & in India? Why is Digital Media
overtaking traditional advertising & communications
media ?
In the form of a dual-specialization, the curriculum
for this program includes a full suite of modern
Marketing courses, as well as in-depth training in
Digital Media Marketing, with a 120+ hours of training
that spans the basics like Search Engine Marketing,
to advanced topics such as Social Media Marketing,
Digital Analytics and more. The curriculum is
designed and delivered by practicing professionals
in the digital space.
Other campuses: Since the study and practice of
Digital Media is highly relevant to marketing majors,
we offer Digital Media Electives at all other campuses,
which gives our students practicable know-how in
Digital Media Marketing and Management.
Supply Chain and Operations
(Currently offered in our Mumbai campus)
The logistics and supply chain management industry
in India has been receiving greater attention in the
last few years. Yet, in spite of its huge potential,
the sectors growth has not kept pace with Indias
wider economy and this is a threat to our future
The acceleration in industrial production and
changes in consumption patterns have resulted in
a high demand for basic and specialized logistics
management, both at the local, and cross-border
levels. Indeed one recent study suggests the Indian
logistics industry will grow at 15-20 per cent per
annum between now and 2015, by which point it will
be worth $385 billion.
This specialization is designed to equip students
with concept and practices of Supply Chain
Management, which will help them take up
challenging jobs is supply chain discipline to
contribute directly to overall corporate success. The
rigorous training during the program will expose
them to take a wide sweep of SCM operations and
strategic activities.
The Supply Chain and Operations Management
specialization covers modules on Strategic
Procurement & World Class Manufacturing,
Networking & Distribution, IT Systems & Outsourcing,
Sustainability & Regulation etc.
Pharma Management
(Currently offered in our Mumbai campus)
The Pharmaceutical industry in India is the worlds
third-largest in terms of volume and stands 14th
in terms of value. The Indian healthcare market is
experiencing double-digit growth in the last few
years. In addition, amendments in IPR laws in-line with
TRIPS is boosting R&D and launching of new and
generic drugs leading to a great need of managerial
talent to meet the challenges in this high growth
This new PGDM iConnect specialization is designed
to meet the needs of the Pharma industry, to equip
the students to take up challenging managerial
positions in the various functional areas in leading
pharmaceutical companies.
This course is a general management course
concentrating on Pharmaceutical Marketing
Strategy, Operations, Finance, Supply Chain,
Product Development and HRM. In addition, course
modules on Intellectual Property Rights, Contract
Management, Business Process Outsourcing, IT
Systems, Regulations and Clinical Research will also
be covered.
With the redesign of the ITM PGDM iConnect program in 2012, weve
modifed, enhanced and created new specializations, considering that the
industry has moved because the industry has moved far ahead of what
business schools have traditionally taught.
Laptop & Libraries: ITM students have
access to a wide variety of knowledge
resources on both digital and paper
(Will be offered in
Greater Noida campus)
The Hospitality Management
specialization consists of
management courses, hands-on
supervisory experience in operations,
and a professional internship in a hospitality
related business. The curriculum allows
students to develop skills and knowledge for a
career in hospitality management cadre or open their
own hospitality business. A PGDM in Hospitality Management
produces highly skilled and profcient professionals who are
empowered to serve an increasingly dynamic hotel and tourism industry
around the world.
The course emphasizes on preparing students for senior management roles & as such
they will have to demonstrate self direction and originality in solving problems as well as
being able to act autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a professional level.
The course will also develop the ability to think critically, and appraise and apply academic
models relevant to the international hospitality industry.

The economic slowdown notwithstanding, the hospitality sector in India is booming and has room for
more. The growing number of hotels, stepping in of multinational chains, Spas, and holiday resorts
is evidence of the fact that this sector is on the upward swing. Therefore there is a defnite demand
for qualifed professionals who can manage & cater to discerning customers. This is where a PGDM
in Hospitality Management comes into play.
Our Campuses

(PGDM) iConnect programs at its campuses in Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, Navi
Mumbai, Warangal and Noida.

International Experiences
The trip to Europe was the best experience so far,
may it be in terms of education or culture. When we
landed in Budapest it was the best feeling ever, it
just started and we were thrilled just by the thought
of spending 3 months there. The hostel was in the
prime location of Budapest, staying with 60 friends in
the same hostel was also a very different experience.
We studied in ESSCA . The college was an experience
in itself with amazing infrastructure and a great set
of faculties. We went for various industrial visits
like Audi, ThyssenKrupp, Budapest airport, match
supermarket and many more. In addition we were
given live projects to work on and understand the
European Market.
Language was a barrier which led to communication
gaps but the experience was different and helped us
understand the diffculties that one might face in a
foreign environment and gave us an opportunity to
learn and overcome such diffculties. We tried their
traditional food. Some of us liked it and some did
not. Nevertheless we throughly enjoyed experience
of cultural difference and felt it has its own charm.
The weekends passed exploring Budapest and
many students visited other countries like Austria,
Italy, Germany and many more. Time few and fnally
we were set for Caen, France. In between we had a
stop in Brussels, Belgium. It was a great experience;
we visited the European commission, chocolate
factory, famous Belgium beer brewery and many
other places. The famous Belgium chocolates and
waffes were really tempting and delicious. While
walking down the streets we were amazed to see
people singing Indian songs and asking us about
many famous actors and movies.
It was now time and we were all set for France,
it was a lot of travelling but the excitement
level was really high. The hostel was amazing
and we had single rooms. We started with
our study at LM-Normandie which is a very
structured university & minutely set out plan. This
university had the perfect balance of tours, visits,
studies and fun. Though the place Caen was very
small but the fun was no less. We went to visit
many of the beautiful historical places like St.Mont
Michael, the memorial etc. The factory visits included
a visit to guy degrenne, cheese factory, cider farms
etc. Like Budapest, here also we spent our weekends
exploring adjoining places like Etretat, Switzerland
and various other countries.
One month passed without anyone one of us
realizing this and it was time for us to go. Finally we
landed up at our last destination i.e. Paris, he Heart
of Europe and an exquisitely beautiful city. After a
lot of hard work, studies, assignments and exams
we fnally were free for 3 days to have fun and we
did not waste even one moment of it. We visited
the Eiffel tower, Disney land, beautiful markets and
all other monuments that Paris was famous for. Now
fnally came the time to bid good bye and mixed
feelings landed in each ones heart (one of meeting
the family and 2nd one of leaving the place). This
Europe trip is one of the most crucial parts in each IB
students Life. If given a chance all of us would love to
undergo the same journey.

Travelling abroad is one of the best experiences
one can ever get. When there is an opportunity
to travel with friends for education for an
extended stay of three months, the feeling is just
overwhelming. The trip to Singapore for three
months is one of the most amazing things and
we had a wonderful time travelling, sharing and
learning. The trip gave us exposure to different
culture, cuisines, education, and different
methods of teaching and life styles.
We, students of PGDM; International Business
at ITM-Business School Chennai, studied Asian
Business and Economics at East Asian School of
Business(EASB). During the three months course,
all classes were held thrice a week. A total of six
subjects were covered over the period with two
subjects a month. At the end of every month,
there will be a presentation relevant to the subject
and this involved extended research and analysis
on the topic followed by written examination for
each subject. The topics covered in all the subjects
were in accordance to the current scenario in the
Asia-Pacifc region and the teachers were industry
experts who shared their life experiences and
Apart from education we were involved in a lot
of activities that involved a lot of traveling and a
great amount of fun. Singapore is a place for visit
and exploring. When a group of friends are ready
to explore the city, the fun and frolic is boundless.
We embarked on a journey through the
country and there were a lot of culture enriched
places which we discovered and this helped in
understanding the Chinese customs. We tried
different cuisines which were a depiction of their
traditional values.
This trip paved way to explore countries around
Singapore and we travelled to Malaysia and
Indonesia. Malaysia, which was once a part of
Singapore, was so very different in many ways
in terms of law and order. Travelling through
Indonesia showed the richness of their culture
and heritage. The country which is still developing
is one of the places to shop since the cost is quite
cheap when compared to Singapore.
Three months few away like the wind and it was
time to come back to the place where we belong.
The experiences, memories and knowledge
which the land of rules and fne gave us for a
lifetime and none of us can erase it from the
eyes of brains. We were able to make friends
with people from different walks of life and
understand their ideology and ethics.
If there is one more chance to go to the place
which helped us all bond, there can be no reason
to say no.

The law of being a successful management professional requires the aspirant to do
the following:
1. Charter unknown territories.

I got the opportunity to work with one of Indias most impressive and customer-
friendly Organisation: Sahara. During the internship, I was assigned to work
on the launch of Sahara city homes in the companys advertising and PR
department. I went ahead and interacted with people and dealers associated
with these township projects. The best thing about this internship was I got the
frst hand experience of how things actually work in a corporate. My internship
experience was everything I thought & have indeed learned a great deal, I hope
for a possibility for full time employment at Sahara, but if not, Im grateful for the

PGDM 2011-13 (Human Resources)
I had a split internship at two companies. My frst internship of two months with the
oldest bank in India gave me an opportunity to be a part of the working culture of SBI
Learning Centre. Through my work, I got a chance to interact with the employees who
introduced me to the other side of the coin, i.e., nitty-gritties of the banking system.
The perceptions of various cadres added to my knowledge and enabled me to look
at the ins and outs of circumstances before coming to a decision or implementing
it. The next 3 months at a completely new organisation: SIMC helped me to clearly
distinguish between the functioning as well as the work environment of a PSU and a
Private Sector Organisation. The study at SIMC gave me a practical knowledge about
the concepts studied in class. This period of three months was an exposure to the
real corporate environment. Being a fresher it added to my experience. A frst hand
interaction boasted my communication skills, thereby enhancing my confdence.

benefcial for ones personal growth.
As a student of International Business, the summer school program at
ESSCA, Budapest and EM, Normandie gave an up-close experience of
the European way of life their culture, lifestyles, education and economic
system. Travelling across the continent, you get thinking more of how a
cluster of diverse nations achieved seamless integration across borders
to become the largest economic zone in the world. As part of my
automobile project, we were taken to the plants of Suzuki, Porsche, Audi,
Renault and Knorr Bremse. The visit to Audi, Gyor was truly remarkable
as we witnessed the creation of their TSi, V6 and V10 beasts from scratch.

Messages from our Alumni...
ITM-Warangal could be termed as Gurukul as
the word Gurukul is not only meant for a place
where hefty curriculum are designed and taught,
but also a place which nourishes the thoughts of
its people. In ITM-Warangal I have learnt so many
things which I am leveraging today and those are
really helping me to grow not only personally but
professionally as well. It has never guided us to
become successful; we were always directed to
achieve excellence in whatever we do, as success
always follows excellence. We always learnt that it
does not matter to be the best, but what matters
is that we should give our best.

ITM Bangalore has been an experience of a
lifetime. Had one of the best relations with
the seniors and the faculty. We successfully
conducted QUIVER Corporate Quiz in
Bangalore with none other than Quiz Master
Dereck Obrien hosting the show. The long
hours on and off classrooms, projects, events
and the simplistic approach made ITM
Bangalore one of the best places for preparing
us for the corporate world. ITM Bangalore
was the workshop where education was
well blended with real life experiences that
prepared us to brace up the challenges ahead.

For any management student Learning Outside
the Classroom is much more important than
learning inside the classroom. In this regard
ITM-Business School Chennai was one of the best. The
staff of ITM (Director and his team) made sure we met and
interacted with maximum number of corporate frms in
the two years that we spent there. The student-organised
management meet, MANAQUEST 2000 that we organised
in my batch, was a totally unforgettable experience! As an
entrepreneur today, when I look back, I realise what a great
value addition these exposures and interactions have given
me. At the same time, having fun was very much a part of
our lives. I will always cherish those two years I spent in ITM,
and want to wish ITM and its team all the very best in the
days to come.

ITM was not only an education institute for me but it
presented me with kaleidoscope of experiences which
made me a professional even before I stepped out into
the corporate world. Two years of studying and living in
ITM was the most cherished time of my life. The Learnings,
the surviving, the small but profound insights given by our
visiting faculties, the fun, the GPAs massacre and the late
nights presentation preparations, the ups and the downs ,
every moment spent with ITM is still nurtured by everyone
of us , because you change the moment you become an
ITM ite, it helps you to fnd the best of you.

are created, through rigorous transformational experiments. The buzzing

individual growth & holistic development. Its USP lies in the unconventional
ways of imparting education, coeval teaching style & methodology, usage of

practical exposure beyond curriculum, in order to yield industry-ready
professionals for the job-market.

Equipped with ultra-modern & high-tech infrastructure and facilities; ITM

thereby creating an interface for networking & learning, through interaction

Social Consciousness Initiatives
The study and practice of business is incomplete without
understanding and experiencing the effect of business practices
on our human society and our planet. Corporate Social
Responsibility is becoming a core value at most organizations
today, and most companies in the Fortune 500 are following the
tenets of the Triple Bottom Line: People, Planet & Proft.
ITM has always fostered a culture of giving and sharing-
evidenced by the many long-term CSR initiatives that we have
undertaken in the past decade. Our objective is to inculcate
the values and practices of CSR into every student who passes
through our doors.
The NGO project, which has been a mainstay of the ITM PGDM
program for many years, has also been redesigned in keeping
with the objectives of the iConnect initiative.
Instead of taking up a project for a few weeks to obtain a
certifcate at the end, ITM PGDM iConnect students will involve
themselves with intensive, concurrent NGO projects. In this
manner, they will be sensitized towards the need of CSR, and
be able to experience and participate in the socially conscious
business practices of NGOs, charities and foundations that are
dedicated to the upliftment of people and the planet.
In fact, many NGOs have had their briefng sessions with the
students where expectations are clearly laid out, and names like
Kotak Education Foundation, Akanksha Foundation, Dharam
Bharti Mission and Sujaya Foundation have already confrmed
their participation in the program along with many others.
The NGO project has been designed to be concurrent, allowing
students to spend a part of their program schedule at the NGO
project site, and actively participate in the operations of these
organizations. Like every part of the iConnect redesign, the
concurrent NGO Project is a full-credit course and performance
in the project will affect the students overall grade.
